A trip to Harris's is a must every time I visit Penzance. The restaurant is family run, intimate and exquisitely tastefully decorated. Service is courteous, thoughtful and friendly. There is a fairly limited menu of seafood, steaks and lamb - all ingredients sourced locally. The...More

Have dined here several times with my family and although it's quite pricey, the quality is always superb and the service excellent. I never baulk at paying for quality and frankly if you want a huge plate of gut busting food then go to the...More

We had a wonderful meal on Saturday evening. My husband had smoked salmon and crab as a starter. The dressing on the salad was excellent. My main course was a wonderfully tender venison steak and once again the sauce was to die for. Many thanks...More

Staying round the corner in the Union Hotel, I had dinner here on one evening of my stay in Penzance. I liked everything about it. I had Newlyn crab salad followed by whole Dover sole, cooked to absolute perfection. Excellent.

Tucked away in New Street we booked here on a recommendation. Some restaurants are excellent but not in the same class as a top restaurant. Harris's is right there. If you want plush and showy decor then this won't fulfil that, as some reviews mention...More

The entrance to this restaurant is very much like a side door to a pub. Once through the door you are greeted by a sea of coral coloured decor. We nearly discounted this place on those first impressions. However, after 3 courses, we were pleased...More
